    oopss... no it probably will not work because the white plastic piece holds the ribbon cable in contact with the fingers on the connector.
    IF you are good at soldering and can find a replacement connector, you could replace it, otherwise you might have to purchase the whole board... hurts due to just the connector being damaged.
    There are mickey mouse was to repair it, but aren't real reliable.
    Good luck!

    Any idea where I can order the whole board.. Or maybe I should aim for a whole new camera/gimbal?

    Keep an eye on eBay ( DJI vision gimbal board ) as your search, they pop up now and again for aroun $100
    But it's a gamble if they work, I bought 1, no go so seller sent another ( no go ) 3rd one worked!
    Or
    Call this guy:
    Mike Holtz
    530-277-5366
    ( tell him Jerry from Florida sent you, he can help ) a bit more expensive but garanteed to work!

    Hope this helps

    You can "Hunch"on here. he usually has camera parts, probably be almost just as cheap to buy the whole camera these days
